Allen West Hammers Obama, Holder for Roles in Race-Baiting Industry

By Rick Pearcey • November 28, 2014, 12:31 PM

Breitbart reports:

On Thursday’s broadcast of Fox & Friends on the Fox News Channel, former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) slammed President Barack Obama and outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder for the double standard applied to black-on-white crime versus white-on-black incidents, in particular the announcement of the St. Louis grand jury’s decision not to try Ferguson, MO, Police Officer Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

"Eric Holder said that he is very fine with being an activist, and this is their definition of social justice. This is once again being a part of the grievance industry and the race-baiting industry that continues to keep the black community in a situation of economic servitude, and also it is about electoral votes," West said.

"The unfortunate and sad thing is that no one is looking at is the consequences of Michael Brown, his actions and what it resulted in, tragically, his death," West continued.

"We really need a discussion in the black community about families, about families being together, about education, about young black men having respect for authority and better jobs and education opportunities. The left, the progressive socialists Barack Obama, Eric Holder -- they don't want to have that discussion."

Kevin Jackson: Race Relations "in the Toilet Since Obama Took Over"

By Rick Pearcey • November 27, 2014, 10:16 AM

"Father, author, and conservative talk-radio host Kevin Jackson, while in Ferguson, Mo., on Wednesday, said that Geroge Stephanopoulos' ABC News interview of police officer Darren Wilson was 'terrible journalism,' and added that 'race relations have gone in the toilet since Obama took over,' aided by the actions of Attorney General Eric Holder 'and his minions'," reports Michael Chapman at CNSNews.com.

"Everybody knows that race relations have gone in the toilet since Obama took over,” Jackson is quoted as saying. "In fact, when he did his first press conference over the Ferguson deal, he was talking about how race relations have come a long way. Yes, they had come a long way until he and Holder and the rest of his minions came along."

It's Not Just Obamacare: Gruber Says Abortion Is a Social Good

By Rick Pearcey • November 26, 2014, 09:08 AM

Dustin Siggins writes at CNSNews.com:

Over the last three weeks, MIT professor and Affordable Care Act (ACA) architect Jon Gruber has gone from being an academic, known mostly in policy circles, to the face of political dishonesty and manipulation. Gruber, who helped create and sell the ACA to the American people, has been caught on tape admitting -- on multiple occasions -- that the law was written to mislead the public.

But that's not all that he's done. As originally reported by Jerome Corsi, Gruber is the author of at least two separate reports arguing that legalized abortion has tremendous social benefit. His work also provided some of the foundation for the 2005 book, Freakonomics, which promoted the idea of abortion as a means of improving society's children.

IRS Sued for Monitoring U.S. Churches

By Rick Pearcey • November 25, 2014, 10:19 AM

Bob Unruh reports at WND:

In a lawsuit settlement with the atheist Freedom from Religion Foundation [FFRF], the Internal Revenue Service admitted it had monitored churches for allegedly illegal political activity, but the details never were released because the group withdrew its complaint.

Now, Washington watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the IRS seeking any records relevant to IRS monitoring of churches and other tax exempt organizations regarding alleged political activity. . . .

"The atheist organization filed a lawsuit in 2012 alleging the IRS ignored its complaints about the speech of churches that cite the Bible regarding issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage," Unruh reports. FFRF said the "statements violate the law, because the moral issues were being addressed in a political arena."

According to WND, "The atheists also complained of what they called 'blatantly political' newspaper ads on the religious and moral issues. Then, in June, an agreement was reached in which the IRS admitted it had been monitoring churches and other houses of worship for 'electioneering and other political activity'."

"Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Americans have 'the God-given right to both express their religious views and to engage in the political process'," WND reports.

"It is troubling that the IRS seems set to rely on a group of atheists to point them toward churches that might have criticized politicians," WND quotes Fitton as saying. 

"It is even more disturbing that the IRS would violate federal law, The Freedom of Information Act, in order to keep secret its monitoring of Americans praying together in church," Fitton also reportedly said.

"To be clear, the very IRS that abused tea partiers for Obama’s election now purports to be able to 'audit' houses of worship in order to protect politicians from criticism. I am sure the Obama administration is more than happy to use the excuse of a lawsuit by a leftist group to use the IRS to punish churches that oppose Obama’s war on religious freedom," Fitton said, according to WND.

Watch: Geraldo Slapped Down in Immigration Debate

By Rick Pearcey • November 24, 2014, 09:35 AM

Sarah Rumpf reports at Breitbart.com:

In an appearance on Fox News Channel's Hannity show, Geraldo Rivera attempted to justify President Barack Obama's executive orders protecting millions of illegal immigrants from deportation, blaming "hard-core, tea party radicals" in Congress for forcing the President to act, but found himself repeatedly slapped down rhetorically by both the host of the show, Sean Hannity, and his fellow guest, A.J. Delgado, a National Review columnist and contributor at Breitbart.com. 

As seen in this Youtube video of the debate, Rivera is soundly rebutted by both Hannity and Delgado, who identifies herself as a Latina.

Sessions: We Must Stop Emperor Obama

By Rick Pearcey • November 21, 2014, 11:47 AM

What follows are portions of an editorial from Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama:

Americans defeated President Obama's disastrous amnesty plans both in Congress and at the voting booth. Tonight, President Obama defied an entire nation and declared that he will impose his rejected amnesty through the brute force of executive order.

President Obama's executive amnesty will provide an estimated 5 million illegal immigrants with the exact benefits Congress rejected, in violation of federal law. His order will grant them social security numbers, government-issued ID's, legal status and work permits. Illegal immigrants will now be able to take jobs and benefits directly from struggling Americans in a time of high unemployment and low wages. They will be able to take jobs from Americans in all occupations, ranging from truck drivers to power company workers to jobs with city government. Many illegal immigrants will also be able to obtain green cards and become permanent residents, allowing them access to almost all federal programs, to receive citizenship and sponsor foreign relatives to join them in the U.S. . . .

Only a short time ago, President Obama himself admitted this action would be illegal and unconstitutional: "I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own," he explained, adding "that's not how our democracy functions. That's not how our Constitution is written." President Obama also said that: "The problem is that I'm the president of the United States, I'm not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed."

Apparently, America now has its first emperor. . . .

How should a free people respond to Emperor Obama's usurpation of power? "The great task before the nation now is to resist this imperial decree and return control of this nation to its own citizens -- as our Constitution established," the editorial states. "That task begins with Congress refusing to allow a dime of money to be spent executing this unlawful amnesty. This a routine, constitutional and crucial application of congressional power."

Here is Sen. Sessions' website.

Krauthammer: Obama Like Leader of "Banana Republic"

By Rick Pearcey • November 20, 2014, 09:12 AM

"Columnist Charles Krauthammer said that President Obama's planned executive order on immigration is comparable to the actions of a leader of a banana republic on Wednesday's 'Special Report' on the Fox News Channel," Breitbart reports

"The only rationale Obama is citing in doing this . . . is not lack of resources, it's not a crisis, it's not something new, as he said, the system is broken, it has been for decades. It is one thing and one thing alone: I waited long enough," Breitbart quotes Krauthammer as saying.

"That's what caudillo says in a banana republic: I waited long enough and the national assembly hasn't acted, so I'm going to issue a decree. That is not how it works in our system," Krauthammer said.

Are You Being Watched Via Your Webcam?

By Rick Pearcey • November 19, 2014, 10:31 AM

"A website is displaying the video streams of webcams in tens of thousands of private homes and businesses around the world to show how easy it is to intercept them if the owner doesn’t change the manufacturer’s default user name and password," Bob Unruh reports at WND.

"Last week, I sat at my computer and watched a young man from Hong Kong relaxing on his laptop; an Israeli woman tidying the changing room in a clothes store; and an elderly woman in the UK watching TV," WND quotes Joseph Cox writing at Motherboard magazine.

"All of these people were completely unaware that I was spying on them, thousands of miles away, through devices that were inadvertently broadcasting their private lives on the Internet," Cox wrote.

Texas House Republicans Choosing Political Gain Over the Unborn

By Rick Pearcey • November 17, 2014, 10:07 AM

Brandon Darby writes at Breitbart:

Texas House Republicans are poised to show that the sanctity of unborn life is a matter they can compromise on in order to achieve legislative success on other issues in the coming Texas legislative session. 

The House Republicans are expected to choose a NARAL (National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League) favored candidate, current Speaker Joe Straus (R-San Antonio) over the pro-life challenger, Scott Turner (R-Frisco) in the race for Speaker of the Texas House. 

Pro-life Republicans make up a near two-thirds majority of the Texas House, which will take its first recorded vote when they convene on January 13, 2015, to select the Speaker of the House for the 84th Legislative Session.

Straus is supported by House Democrats and pro-choice moderate Republicans, while Turner has been graded one of the most conservative members of the House, and has a reputation for supporting pro-life issues.

Islam Comes to the National Cathedral

By Rick Pearcey • November 14, 2014, 10:12 AM

Diana West takes a look at the "National Cathedral's decision to host Friday Islamic prayers" today:

The service is the brainchild of the Rev. Canon Gina Campbell, the Episcopal cathedral's director of liturgy, and South African Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool, a Muslim, who is delivering the sermon.

Invitation-only guests include Masjid Muhammad of The Nation's Mosque, representatives of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).

"That's some roster if playing 'Spot the Muslim Brotherhood Front' is a hobby," West observes.

"The Episcopal Church blindly, blithely thinks the cathedral's Islamic service 'demonstrates an appreciation of one another's prayer tradition.'

"In fact, it is against Islamic law for Muslims to hold Christianity or Judaism in the same regard the Episcopal Church is now showing Islam," West writes."Indeed, Islamic law 'abrogates' (cancels) Christianity and Judaism as 'previously revealed religions (that) were valid in their own eras,' but are no longer -- not after the advent of Islam in the 7th century."

Gallup: Record 63% Say Having Gun Makes Home Safer

By Rick Pearcey • November 13, 2014, 10:42 AM

Terry Jeffrey reports at CNSNews.com:

Sixty-three percent of Americans questioned in a Gallup survey conducted in October and released this month said they believe having a gun in their house makes it a safer place to be.

"A record-high percentage in U.S. say guns makes homes safer," said Gallup in its analysis of the survey. The organization has polled on this issue in five surveys going back to 1993 (although the question in the 1993 survey was somewhat different than in later surveys).

"In 1993, 42 percent said having a gun in the house makes it safer; in 2000, 35 percent; in 2004, 42 percent; in 2006, 47 percent; and in 2014, 63 percent," Jeffrey reports.

"The percentage of Americans who believe having a gun in the house makes it a safer place to be (63%) has nearly doubled since 2000, when about one in three agreed with this," Gallup said.

Christian Extermination in the Middle East

By Rick Pearcey • November 12, 2014, 08:33 AM

Raymond Ibrahim writes at Frontpage: 

Among other things, a Christian church that had stood on the ground of Iraq for 1,800 years -- a church that was erected less than 200 year after Christ -- was reportedly torched by the Islamic State, according to numerous news agencies, including Al Arabiya.

Islamic State jihadis also stormed and took over an ancient monastery in northern Iraq and expelled its few monks, telling them "You have no place here anymore, you have to leave immediately." The monks plead to be allowed to save some of the monastery’s ancient relics but the jihadis refused and ordered them to walk many miles along a deserted road with nothing but their clothes. (St. Behnam monastery had stood since the fourth century and was one of Iraq’s best-known Christian landmarks.  It was built by an Assyrian king as a penance for executing his children Behnam and Sarah for converting to Christianity.)

Go here to read the rest of Ibrahim's July 2014 report on persecution that spans "different ethnicities, languages, and locales -- from Morocco in the West, to Indonesia in the East."

Ibrahim concludes: "It should be clear that one thing alone binds them: Islam -- whether the strict application of Islamic Sharia law, or the supremacist culture born of it."

David Limbaugh: A Smoking Gun for Us "Stupid" American Voters

By Rick Pearcey • November 11, 2014, 10:08 AM

David Limbaugh writes in his most recent column:

Recently, a very disturbing video emerged that contains the metaphorical smoking gun concerning President Obama's many lies about Obamacare. This should remove any lingering doubt that we're dealing with a fascist-type administration.

Of course, there should be no need for a smoking gun, because it is now undeniable that Obama lied on his major selling points about the Affordable Care Act. Unlike many Democrats in falsely accusing President George W. Bush of lying about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, I don't use the term "lie" lightly. . . .

"The Daily Caller reports that in a newly surfaced video [watch the video here], Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, an MIT professor, made some stunning admissions concerning how the administration presented the bill and how it overtly deceived the public because the bill never would have passed otherwise," Limbaugh continues.

Limbaugh then quotes Gruber:

This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure [the Congressional Budget Office] did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. OK? So it's written to do that. In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said healthy people are going to pay in -- you made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money -- it would not have passed.

. . . Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically, that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass. . . . Look, I wish [health economist] Mark [Pauly] was right [that] we could make it all transparent, but I'd rather have this law than not.

Limbaugh next makes the following points:

They Lie: "You can see the mindset that these people have. There is no mistaking it. They know better than we 'stupid' American people what is good for us, so they'll do whatever is necessary, including purposely deceiving us, to advance their political agenda."

This Is Fascism: "This is the stuff of outright tyrants -- arrogant, unaccountable, cavalier despots. This is political fascism. This is not representative government. This type of behavior nullifies the Constitution and disenfranchises the American people."

This Is Obama: "It's one thing to have strong ideological views. It's altogether another to impose those views at any cost and in derogation of the people's rights. This is who this president is. These are the people he surrounds himself with.

"Obama and his team are not chastened, much less repentant, over the recent election results. They remain undeterred, and they intend to continue using whatever means they deem necessary, in their self-assessed superior wisdom, to accomplish their political ends, beginning with immigration."

No Excuses: "If you were unaware of or in denial about Obama's character and his willingness to deceive and act against the will of the American people before -- despite other smoking guns, such as those concerning his lies on the Benghazi, Libya, attacks -- you have no excuse now."

A Time for Resisting: "Two dangerous years remain in Obama's term. Even Democrats who might agree with many of Obama's remaining agenda items have a duty to oppose his further abuse of our system, including on immigration. But whether or not they step up, it is imperative that Republicans take a hard line against any such corrosive acts against the rule of law and our Constitution."

"Scam": Christian Book Industry Sinks "Into the Mire"

By Rick Pearcey • November 10, 2014, 09:06 AM

Jim Fletcher writes at WND:

"How many of these big ministry guys actually write their own books?" he asked. . . .

"A few of them put in the work and actually write. But you’d be shocked and disgusted by how many of them don’t. It’s virtually a scam."

The real scandal though? The absolute refusal of what some call the Evangelical Industrial Complex to acknowledge and discipline the jugheads within their own ranks.

Put researchers on the church payroll to compile your next bestseller? No problem, you are rewarded with conference speaking gigs to help promote the book.

Use the tithes of hard-working congregants to puff your book through a New York publicity firm? Congratulations, son, we’re going to distribute your stuff through the Catalyst network, good-old-boy Christian retail channels, etc.

"Months ago, when Driscoll’s shoddy, plagiarism-driven books were outed by a few brave souls like Janet Mefferd, those exposing the wrongdoing were lambasted, while prominent evangelical leaders uttered nary a peep," Fetcher continues.

"Think about it. Is Rick Warren going to reign in his protégé, [Mark] Driscoll? Of course not. Did Driscoll’s outrageous behavior from the past disqualify him from speaking for Catalyst?

"Are you kidding? There’s money to be made."

Report: Weather Channel Morning Show Beats CNN, MSNBC

By Rick Pearcey • November 7, 2014, 09:01 AM

John Nolte writes at Breitbart:

According to the Weather Channel, its 6am "Wake Up with Al Roker" beat both CNN's "New Day" and MSNBC's "Morning Joe" this month.

"This is another sign of the slow-motion fall of left-wing cable news networks. While -- thanks to great producing, on-air talent, and a willingness to cover news stories the left-wing MSM ignore -- Fox News soars, there is just no reason anymore to tune into CNN or MSNBC," Nolte writes.

"Tone Deaf" Obama Vows Immigration Executive Action This Year

By Rick Pearcey • November 6, 2014, 10:11 AM

AP reports:

President Barack Obama's determination to act alone to change the immigration system promptly drove a wedge Wednesday into the post-election commitment from the president and Republican leaders to find common ground under the new political alignment.

Sessions: "Mandate" to Block Executive Amnesty

By Rick Pearcey • November 5, 2014, 10:25 AM

Daniel Harper reports at Weekly Standard:

Senator Jeff Sessions, who [won] reelection last night in an uncontested race, says last night's Republican victory is a "mandate" to block President Obama's planned executive amnesty. 

"[T]he American people dramatically repudiated the policies of President Obama, Senator Reid, and Leader Pelosi," the Weekly Standard quotes Sessions as saying. "It was also a dramatic affirmation of the policies our GOP candidates campaigned on: controlling spending, balancing the budget, repealing Obamacare, unleashing American energy, and boosting wages through pro-worker reforms."

Session also said, "Republicans in the House and Senate campaigned against the Obama-Senate immigration bill and on the pledge to block President Obama's unlawful executive amnesty. The immediate emergency facing our new majority will be fighting the President's disastrous planned actions, and we will have not only a Constitutional mandate but also a popular mandate to do so."

Sessions concludes: "The last six years of the Obama-Reid majority have been a government of the elites for the elites. Our new GOP Senators will lead the way in returning government to the loyal citizens who sent us here."

Sheriffs: Executive Amnesty Will Unleash Illegal "Tidal Wave"

By Rick Pearcey • November 4, 2014, 09:28 AM

"There is talk that President Barack Obama will push through an executive amnesty order after the midterm elections that would grant amnesty to at least some of the estimated 11 million illegal aliens currently living in the United States," Newsmax reports.

"We already have our hands full because the border is not secure," Sheriff Paul Babeu of Pinal County, Arizona, is quoted by Newsmax as saying. "Imagine what the situation will look like when the president gives executive amnesty to those already here. It would unleash a tidal wave of illegal border crossings, overwhelming law enforcement. It will be open season for the cartels."

"Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, said if the GOP takes control of the Senate in Tuesday's midterm election, the Republican-controlled chamber would fight hard to make sure amnesty 'doesn't happen'," Newsmax reports.

Cruz Upbeat: "We Are on the Verge of an Historic Election Night" -- Video

By Rick Pearcey • November 3, 2014, 10:09 AM

During a recent appearance on the Hannity show, Sen. Cruz gave his sense of tomorrow's big midterm election:

I've been on the road the last six weeks all over the country. I've been in Kansas. I've been in Georgia. I've been in Iowa. I've been in Colorado. Tonight, I'm here in Florida. I'm headed to Alaska day after tomorrow.

What I'm seeing on the ground is a lot of excitement, a lot of enthusiasm. I think we are on the verge of an historic election night next Tuesday. I think Republicans are going to retake the U.S. Senate. I think we're going to retire Harry Reid as majority leader.

And I'll tell you, Sean, at this point, it all comes down to turnout.  It all comes down to if conservatives show up and vote, and if we get our friends and family and others to show up and vote, we're going to retake the Senate, and I think that's exactly what's going to happen.
